I’ve been rereading many of the novels I enjoyed in my high school days. Voyager in Night is one of the more challenging books by my much revered author, C. J. Cherryh. I reread this one on a Nook and wish that more of her work would be made available on electronic format. Voyager in Night is one of the most unique and difficult novels I have ever read. Images from this book have stayed with me a quarter century after I first read it, although I had completely forgotten how it ends. I think that is because the ending is so difficult to interpret. Cherryh , herself, in an introduction to my Nook version said that she and her editor disagreed on what the ending meant. Unfortunately, the room for interpretation in the ending left me with an unhappy feeling in the pit of my stomach. That being said, I liked the book. The plot premise is that three people are plucked out of their small spacecraft by an alien entity exploring the galaxy. The alien makes electronic copies of them and their digitalized programs are tinkered with as the alien entity and its opponents on the ship, Voyager, vie with each other for control of the ship. You cannot read this one fast, but it is amazing read. I’m only giving it three stars but I do think the book is worth the effort.
